The goal of customer discovery is figuring out who your customers are and whether your idea will appeal to them. You are not trying to figure out what every customer wants or needs. Yolanda Shields, business entrepreneur and bestselling author of “Entrepreneur is a Mindset,” and “Letters To Our Sons,” will walk you through the four stages of customer discovery and give you an opportunity to leave with a Customer Discovery Report Card.
